11/11/20: My parents are here as well as all of my brothers and sisters. It’s super busy.

11/10/20: Yesterday was the first day of youth conference. Today is the day that the action really started. They have a preaching competition and a vocal solo and piano competition tomorrow. Because I’m in college I can’t participate sadly. (Not like I’d participate anyways) my siblings are competing. So, it will be fun to see how they do. Sent from my iPhone

11/08/20: I live almost entirely in a world of logic and ideas. I find beauty in complex systems and how they intertwine. The last two months have shown me that emotion, no matter how much I have ignored it, is the most amazingly complex system ever.

11/07/20: Today was visitation day! Monday, my family should be here! :)

11/06/20: Today I was in my ministry class. My teacher, who likes to sound tough, brought in an extra bag with his class folder. My first thought was, “That’s somewhat suspicious.” Thirty minutes into the class, my teacher just starts throwing candy at people. The expression on his face was deadpan almost the entire time which made it even more absurd and funny, all at the same time. My new dorm-chore/job is to clean the toilets… We’ll soon see how much sleep I get this month. Needless to say, this next week is going to be a real test of my sanity.

11/05/20: Research for my paper is going swimmingly. I really do need better explanations for all of my eccentricities. Especially the ones that have to do with technology. E.g. why I don’t have FB, IG or Snap. (I originally didn’t because of parental restrictions. But, now I really want to stick with it for spiritual and time management reasons.)… work has been much nicer in the last few weeks. (Getting paid helps.)

11/04/20: My room passed Whiteglove with minimal demerits. :P With Whiteglove over: I have more time to invest in working on projects. I have like 3 projects coming due here soon so I’m spending a generous amount of time researching for them. My family is going to visit for a youth conference that my college hosts, so that will be fun! It’s going to be quite the trip for them. Right now I’m looking forward to the end of the semester. By that time I should have a pretty respectable GPA.

11/03/20: Today we are having something called “Whiteglove”. It is exactly what it sounds like. Everyone had to be out of the dorm by 7:30. Our dorm-dad/super is going through all of the rooms, turning off the lights, shining a flashlight and wiping for dust. Any dust found =s demerits. :) Both stressful and super fun at the same time.

11/02/20: I haven’t ever experienced so many social problems at once. *insert stereotypical nerd social problems here* :P Though, I love helping people with tech problems around campus! I played a fun game with a stuffed shark named Max on the bus. :)

10/27/20: Today I am just re-reading a ton of notes. I am also going to be working on a few projects that are due mid-next month. Done a few refresher exercises on freeCodeCamp.org they are actually pretty nice.
